strcpy_P does not seem to work to copy a string

Hi

This works:
const char abcdef = "ABCDEF";
strcpy(s, abcdef);

But this doesn't:

const char PROGMEM abcdef = "ABCDEF";
strcpy_P(s, abcdef);

So, in other words, when I store the string in program memory, the code fails, although reading through previous posts, it's my understanding it should work.

Does someone have any ideas ? Where am I wrong ?

Thanks

OK ... I was a little too fast ...
The doc. clearly states that the const char needs to be global ...
Case solved ...

…which is why we ask you to post ALL your code.

Yes Sir
